Winter 2017/18 – Why Use Silver Swan Recruitment?

POSTED :

Another winter season has nearly come to an end, and whilst most people are looking forward to the summer, we’re already starting to plan for next winter! It’s a good idea to start looking early, as then you get the pick of the resorts and roles, giving you more of a chance of finding the perfect winter job. Plus, you’ll have the added bonus of having your winter sorted before you head into the summer, so you’ll have no stress as the 2017/18 season starts to draw near.

If you need some encouragement to register with Silver Swan, have a look at just some of the reasons why finding your next winter job through us is the best move…

1. CV advice

We’ve seen our fair share of CVs and know what clients look for when choosing their staff. We can give you the advice to make sure your CV stands out from the crowd and is written or formatted in the best way for the roles you are applying for.

 

2. High paid jobs

We work with the best private chalets and luxury tour operators in the business, so you can be sure that the roles we are offering are the best in the biz. Not to mention, our clients offer some of the highest wages around, so you can have a great season AND come back with some savings in your bank account.

3. We know our clients best…

Most of our clients have worked with us for years, and we’ve been out to resort to visit them all – meeting the team and seeing the chalets where you will be working. So we know if you’ll be the right fit for a role, ensuring you have a happy season!

 

4. We want to get to know you too!

We’re here every step of the way to give you advice and support throughout your job hunt. Not only will we have an initial Skype interview, but we’re only at the end of the phone if you have any questions or concerns about any of our roles. The more we get to know you, the easier it is to match you to the best company for you.

 

5. Industry knowledge

Our clients are spread throughout the Alps across France, Switzerland and Austria. We’ve been out to nearly every resort around, so we can give you advice on the best location to suit you – not to mention insider tips on the best slopes, bars and chalets in each resort!

 

6. Fast track your application

When we put you forward for our roles, our clients trust that you are the best candidate for the position. Sometimes there is no time for them to trawl through CVs to find staff, so they know a CV from Silver Swan will be someone worth talking to straight away.

 

7. Long term help

We have candidates that come back to us season after season looking for the best chalet roles. It’s great if you return to the same chalet year on year, but if you fancy a change, we love working with the same candidates each year (providing you always do a good job and get the references to prove it!)

 

8. Year-round options

We don’t only have winter roles – our vacancies vary from seasonal chalet vacancies to summer positions in villas and on yachts…and we also have permanent vacancies too. If you have finished your season and are looking for your next adventure, get in touch again to see what’s out there.

9. Honest, professional and fun service

At Silver Swan, we pride ourselves on giving you a personal service with a twist. When you pick up the phone to us, you always know who you are going to speak to, and we always try to give you the best advice we can. We don’t want you to just take any role you are offered – we want you to have the best season you can possibly have! Because of that, we’ll be honest with you if we don’t think a role will work for you, or if we think you’ll be better suited elsewhere. We always try to make the perfect match between candidates and clients…and to make sure everyone is happy during the process.

 

10. We love the mountains!

If you ever need convincing that spending five months working in the mountains is the right thing to do, you’ve come to the right place! We’ve done multiple ski seasons between us and are passionate about all things skiing (or in our case, snowboarding), so know how much fun you will have. If you work hard and enjoy your surroundings, there’s no better place to spend a winter!
